During Terms One and Two, we offer workshops in the following areas:

  • Exam and revision techniques.

In addition to these, we offer workshops on:

Each subject workshop is run over the course of a week. You do not need to book a place; all you need to do is just turn up.

In addition to the workshops, we offer one-to-one sessions. At these sessions students are able to seek advice and guidance about particular problems; they can show draft work to a tutor who will advise them on matters relating to structure, critical engagement, grammar, punctuation, paragraphing and referencing. Like the workshops, students do not need to book an appointment, they can just turn up.

What we do advise is that you:

  • Bring work that has been printed out;
  • Avoid bringing in assignments on the day of a deadline; it is better to seek help sooner rather than later, since we do get extremely busy in the approach to coursework deadlines;
  • If the assignment is a lengthy one, it is better to bring it in over several sessions.

Please note that Academic Skills is not a proofreading service, instead, you are best advised to prepare for a one-to-one tutorial by focusing on a particular problem you have, so the tutor can focus their attention on helping to resolve this.

The details of the one-to-one tutorials can be found on the student portal. Outside term time we continue to operate the one-to-one service and details are provided on the portal or else students can request an appointment outside term time by emailing academic-skills@gre.ac.uk
